Porsche 911 Carrera Detail & Paint Correction


Recommended Posts

This unique Green Porsche 911 Carrera came to us requesting

bit of a 'spruce up' to bring her back to life. The car was always cared for,

but in normal circumstances usually via a hand car wash and/or with the wrong

techniques.

Products used were the usual

Menzerna FG500

with

the

RUPES Rotary Polisher

and

Menzerna Wool Pad, also the DAS6 Pro +

Surbuf

Pads & Menzerna FG500 for harder to reach areas including 3"

combination used, stepped down to

Menzerna

PF2500 and again to

Menzerna

SF4000 to really bring out the maximum amount of gloss and clarity from

the paintwork.

As you can see below; marring, holograms and imperfections

were obvious throughout all the paintwork which in turn hides this beautiful

metallic in the green from coming out leaving a very 'dull' finish to a very

nice Porsche!

Even the tail lights had evident swirls/spider webbing

over them

Definitely not how a Porsche emblem should be shown!

Few heavier scratches were also found as you can see

below on the front guard below the headlight

Using the Wheel

Woolies and

1Z

Einszett's new ColourTec Iron Wheel Cleaner to give the wheels a good

clean over

Einszett ColourTec eating through the Carbon (Brake Dust fall out),

bleeding an indication of the carbon cleaning!

The Dodo

Juice Fine Grade Grey Clay Bar did pick up quite a bit of contaminants

from the paintwork, surprisingly a lot over the bonnet area.

The beautiful metallic and colour slowly returning - as

you can see the left shows uncorrected, the right single pass with colour and

clarity already evident

The Plastic Trimmings also were quite weathered and required

a bit of rejuvenation - of course

Nanolex

Trim Rejuvenator was the first product that came to mind. Just a couple

drops at a time to leave the area looking fresh and new again. Once dry leaving

a semi gloss factory like finish as it used to when it was new.

The Porsche's paintwork was finished with

Wolfs

Chemicals Hard Body for a nice deep, wet finish and Tyres with

Duragloss

253 Tyre Dressing - perfectly suited to this Porsche to finish off!
